Ghaza

 Grovel for blood, grovel for blood you bastards
 Hunger for bodies of innocent children and flee
 Amidst webs of mayhem you throw the world asunder
“Zionists we are, all so powerful, all so free!”
  And again the injustice of war compels me

                   To speak in anger and utterly be
                   I am sorry fellow poets if harshness comes with words
                   But the news gives me not any joy, not any glee
                   For the people of Palestine are now in torture
                   And all I can do is watch Ghaza fall to become debris

    Very powerful heart-felt poem. What happens in Palestine is truculent beyond description. They're narrowing it down to just Gaza and the West Bank, but we should never forget it's "Palestine" as a whole that is unjustifiably occupied.

    Ryhming poetry. Words full of passion. May I suggest adding a third stanza in which you explain the need of mutual love and respect among all the nations! starting with respectful civil rights which has to start with compehending the "ten commandments" in the Christian religion and Bahaii religion. Thank you for your beautiful poem.

    Anger, I see anger and I appreciate it. As a fellow Palestinian also, your words are compassionate to me. No matter how angry or hateful they might be, I accept all from such a inspiring and beautiful poem like this. OUTSTANDING write.

    Nothing more tragic and sad than innocents killed in powere struggle...I feel it is such a terrible irony to think that blood is shed over God's name. This is a moving poem Farah!!

    In "Ghaza," no need to say "sorry fellow poets" for we do understand your anger and your pain, the same I felt in my "Madonna of the Rubble" you have commented on with understandable pain and rage, the same that caused my poem to germinate from a a Gulf Daily News 2004 caption: "A Palestinian woman holds a baby as she weeps on the rubble of her house in the Riffa refugee camp." How our poems find relevance in today's rage and pain-filled headlines of your rage and pain-gripped land!

    Young one, how are you my friend? This poem kicks ass...very strong from the opening line...I would love for you to read what I wrote about these events in my poem "Biblical Fingers"...loved this piece of art.

    mankind in general, have the thirst for the blood of their neighbor they refuse to understand. May we all one day live in peace my friend, please renew patience daily as we wait for better things to happen, Lucinda

    very sad to hear and see that on television. Really hope there is peace if only for a little while. Have a great day and take it easy with prayer.

    my dearest Farah,how can anybody assume to know the pain of blood filled tears,the wails of crying for a city known as "Uru'salim",and yet,the city of peace continues in war ravaged blasting of a land filled with a bloody past....how much longer,my dear friend,will we as a world have to endure the madness ?...please do,keep that ancient soul of yours well placed,as we all hope for better days....much love and peace to you my friend...jay

    Powerful and justified words. I must agree with Colin, the innocent children is what drives the knife into my heart. I pray for peace. Be proud of your strong poetry. Love, Shar

    Hello Farah, In every story of conflict I see in the news, the thing that drives the sorrow into me the most, is the children. My heart goes out to your people, too long they've been oppressed and abused, the result of which is this so called rocket terrorism. will the world ever see it for what it really is. Biggest problem is America and England caused all this by handing Palestine over to the Jewish people so it could be called Israel... will USA and UK ever admit to this ?? I don't think so.

    This tragedy is unspeakable. My prayers to all who are suffering. God Help you and yours. ~ Love, Carrie
